They do track their targets though (i.e. the line play for the head ref, the ballcarrier for the line judge, etc) with a simpler system and it looks pretty solid. IMO it's not as good as PA, but they definitely don't look like robots...they follow the ball and their correct assignments.

Maybe it could be more than an illusion

thats good enough..as long as we arent running through them like they arent even there..refs are fine..but thats another topic lol And good work with everything you've done so far by the way.(Just so you dont think nobody cares)

If I remember correctly... Somewhere I read that there is actual collisions that may occur between players and refs.

That could make for some fun target practice.

Yea that would be sick if they would be in the line of the pass sometimes. I would beam the hell out of the refs on purpose sometimes if they get knocked the hell out in the game.

That is the most important thing. I am very happy to read this. Few things would kill the presentation and instan replays than to have the refs staring off into space or looking away from the play. Things are sounding better everyday. I'm glad I have already pre-ordered my copy and am putting a little bit towrds it each week.
